Mechanical Engineering - Steam Nozzles and Turbines - Discussion


In a Parson's turbine stage, blade velocity is 320 m/s at the mean radius and rotor blade exit angle is 30°. For minimum kinetic energy of the steam leaving the stage, the steam velocity at the exit of the rotor will be

[A]. 160/3 m/s
[B]. 320/3 m/s
[C]. 640/3 m/s
[D]. 640 m/s

Answer: Option C

Blade velocity = v(1)*cos(alpfa).

v1 = steam velocity at the exit of the nozzle.

v1 = 320/cos(30) = 640/(root3).

U/v = cos α for reaction turbine (parson).

Explain the answer clearly.

u/v=cos α so u has value 320; α= 30.
320/v= cos 30.

Here it is said that exit velocity of rotor, not nozzle so Option B is correct.

Stream velocity at exit of rotor =Vr (2) = V1 and vane angle at outlet = inlet nozzle angle according to conditions of 50% rxn turbine.
